sterling silver and 18k gold
Because I treat my pieces with respect and love as if they were my children, I sometimes wonder how they are
living after they leave my studio (I tend to anthromorphosize them).
I never regret parting with any of my pieces because I tend not to
attached to objects. Also, I'm honored that someone likes what
I've made enough to acquire and display it. I just fondly think of each
piece all grown up and independent.
This piece, "Hope", was sold to a woman collector who lives
on Fifth Avenue. It's always amusing to imagine how something that was
created in my small Lower East Side studio can end up in a place like that.
Hope is what keeps us going no matter how tough our circumstances
are at the present. It's also the title to one of my favorite
song by Bauhaus.
"Your mornings will be brighter
Break the line
Tear up rules
Make the most of a million times no"
(lyrics from the song "Hope" by Bauhaus; album "Burning from the Inside")
